Photo Booth Collage - mixed media style

I thought I would share this small journal panel made in the same way as I have created a photo booth collage over at Country View Crafts Project Blog today - both are mixed media style. Once made up these can be used for journal pages or card toppers - you choose.

This one was made using DecoArt media fluid acrylics which is slightly different to the CVC one. 

I used very little in both collages and even less on this one.
The steps are the same though although I used watery raw umber to edge this panel, just dipping the sides into it and drying as I went along.

If you would like to see how you could put one together similar to these using your own products and colours the please pop over to the CVC post where I explain how to do it.

Thanks for popping in - I hope you are having a good week.

Updated from CVC

Take a piece of media card and scrape some gesso over it and dry. Then take some of the mini Artistic Flair tab stencils - these are so cute and great for small projects - with a palette knife again scrape gesso through it creating random areas on the card.
When dry spritz little areas with water and with a brush dip some of the Amsterdam  Acrylic Ink Cool Grey into it, tip the card to let the colour swirl into the recesses etc. Dry and repeat with Burnt Umber.

Put one small drop of the Burn Umber ink onto a craft mat and smooch it into a smudge shape and quickly before it dries drag the card through it and the colour will transfer randomly.

Distress the edges and blend in ground espresso distress ink. The gather some little bits for a collage or add embellishments of your own and use as a journal panel or a topper for a card. I used a photo booth pic and a type charm with some of my collage scraps.
